Storyline

"La Doña," based on the literary work of Rómulo Gallegos "Doña Bárbara," is a story of revenge and ambition, seduction and betrayal. Told from the perspective of an abused woman named Altagracia, she represents the hundreds of thousands of Mexican women who have been victims of violence by men who are protected by impunity and a patriarchal culture. In Altagracia's case, these men are five teenagers from prominent families who rape her as a child and murder her parents. Having picked herself and her sister up from the ashes, Altagracia became a ruthless, strong-willed devourer of men, and with the fortune of an ex-husband, "La Doña" looks to bring her abusers, and any others she finds along the way, to her own brand of justice.

I don't speak Spanish so I watched this with subtitles on Netflix. It made no difference to my enjoyment cos I loved it! It's gripping. The main character Altragracia is truly awesome and every scene with her is a delight to watch. The story line is good and the show is not over the top like many other telenovelas, and has a positive message. Many scenes are very nicely done, with lots of sensitive dialogue and situations. There were times when I physically cried (and I'm a guy). I was emotionally moved by many episodes and blown away by some scenes. The camera work is spot on - I love how some of the shots are done with a faded foreground object (plants, flowers etc) whilst the characters in the background are totally focused. Episode 89 took my breath away. Sadly, the last 10-15 episodes were a bit of a mess, and showed some holes in the plot, but overall, I feel empty now that I have just finished the last of the 120 episodes.

Awesome!
